QR Codes are in our library! 

QR codes on our library books are be linked to YouTube book trailers, author interviews, or additional information about the subject or author of the book. Not all of the library's books have QR Codes, but most new books do have them. QR codes are in one of two places on a library book; the lower right hand corner on the front cover of the book, or the lower left hand corner on the back cover of the book.  There is a colored star at the top of the spine indicating it has a QR code. That way, if the book is shelved, you will know that it has a QR code.
